Liverpool win Premier League: Reds' 30-year wait for top-flight title ends

I am a casual fan of EPL (at best), as I try to follow and support MLS's growth in the states. As Liverpool has clinched the championship, will some star players now do "load management" similar to how NBA players take a couple games off per season?

MLB owners and players agree to a 60-game 2020 season

I loathe thinking this, but I would be surprised if the planned MLB "regular season" does not get cut short due to public pressure if Covid19 x regular seasonal flu hits hard in a couple months.

Discovered the story of Peter Norman this morning: Australian 200m sprinter in the 1968 Mexico Olympics who stood with two black Americans on the victory pedestal. Forever after, he was shunned by the AUS sports community. Norman wasn't invited as part of the Australian delegation for the opening of the 2000 Sydney games, but the US invited him to attend as part of the US delegation..

Of all the crazy things to happen in 2020, CrossFit being "cancelled" by a large portion of American society was not on the list.

Quite the number of Confederate battle flags get flown at Daytona and Talladega, it would be great to see that symbol disappear from the racetrack crowd. On the otherhand, those flags were easy identifiers of what tailgates to avoid.

Big shout out to the user how shared the article a few days ago on Tim Rossovich (https://www.si.com/vault/1971/09/20/612423/hes-burning-to-be-a-success).

Great article, they definitely don't make NFL players like that anymore

Odell Beckham should be used as QB more often...Plus he can kick FGs. Some guys are scouted as "athletes" coming out of college, but Beckham is the best example of an ATH in the NFL since JJ Watt took snaps as a TE and caught a couple TDs a few seasons ago.

P.S.: JJ Watt was robbed from 2014 league MVP thanks to a historic season by Aaron Roger;, Watt had something like 20.5 sacks, 1 safety, 1 INT returned 80yds for 1 TD, and 2TDs off of forced fumbles. On offense, 3 catches, 3 TDs.

Chiefs Cut Kareem Hunt After Video of Violence Against Woman

I predict that he'll be on a team next season if he is eligible. Not much of a risky prediction, as his skills and speed are rare among his peers.

What's the difference between & and &&? I've only been taught to use && in my intro-courses.

FSU just can't catch a break under their new headcoach. Sad to see such undisciplined play on their offense w/ multiple illegal formation penalties.
